The Lyrics

This is about how the glam freaks of the 70s inspired the glorious freaks of the 80s.
We're a real wild group and we'll knock you for a loop,
Each one of us a glitter prince.
Caught a New York Dolls show a few months ago
And we've been glammed out ever since.
I saw David Bowie
Who looked pretty showy
With that neon orange hair of his.
That dude was shocking. We try to be that rocking
And mimic that group called Kiss, like this.
Heavy metal rockers who were cranking up the volume
Being just as dark as they would dare
We flipped over the way
That Black Sabbath would play and shock people
Like they didn't care.
So we got a showman who looks like a woman
Like the glam rockers of yesterday
Those rockers really know
How to put on a great show
Man, those dudes know just how to play
And they taught us to

Chorus:
Shock this way, rock this way
Shcok this way, rock this way
Trying to act like Kiss
Like this

Hard core rockers acting shockin' really rockin'
As glammed out as they could be.
The Alice Cooper Band was a-rockin' the land
An' they looked wicked cool to me.
We used to be real losers, never made it to the big time
Till Aerosmith showed us something we missed.
Now we're winning ladies' hearts and climbing up the charts
Still trying to be like Kiss like this.
Heavy metal rockers who were cranking up the volume
Being just as dark as they would dare
We flipped over the way
That Black Sabbath would play and shock people
Like they didn't care
So we got a showman who looks like a woman
Like the glam rockers of yesterday
Those rockers really know
How to put on a good show
And they taught us how to shock this way
They taught us to

Chorus
